The Imperial Dominion of Arithei is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Lord Lanair with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, free-roaming dinosaurs, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 37.309 billion Arithites hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, although Environment and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alqualondë. The average income tax rate is 86.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Aritheian economy, worth an astonishing 14,368 trillion Drachmas a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 385,133 Drachmas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Most households' childcare costs are higher than their mortgage payments, 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Arithei's radio stations, getting an infected tattoo is considered a rite of passage in Arithei, and the nation has nearly as many history museums as Arithites. Crime is totally unknown. Arithei's national animal is the Lynx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Arithei is ranked 16,740th in the world and 10th in NationStates for Highest Drug Use, scoring 114.6 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
